    apparently, in Thailand, they really respect the king.
    FYI - Thailand is the only country that was never colonized by foreign entities

    Wow, reminds one why it's nice to live somewhere where freedom of expression or dissent is not so tightly censored. Imagine the consequences if people dissented against the policies of the Thai King the way we dissent about our presidents. (note that I say president"s") I have a feeling that no one there would really care to listen to an ACLU dissertation on 1st amendment rights!!

    Oh, google loves China, I'm sure they will set up some nice filters for the Chinese leaders to help them maintain their absolute power. So, do filters count as a block or just half a block???!
    Following everyone else is a GREAT way to become average.

    You don't need to imagine.

    A Swiss guy who had lived in Thailand for ages was sentenced to 15 years in prison for defacing pictures of The King last year. This guy had lived in Thailand long enough to know better, he faced a maximum 30 years in prison but got 15 for pleading guilty.

    The King of Thailand has no political power (as such) but he has been very influential in resolving political issues.

    Cheers

    Thanks for reminding me to be grateful for being an American living in America. Sometimes I forget how fortunate we are that we don't have to censor ourselves for fear the government will do it for us.

    Just don't yell "fire" in a movie theater and you'll be fine.

    Guess Thailand doesn't even want bloggers to report on this.

    China begs to differ
    China gave over Macau and Hong Kong to prevent their colonization and destruction. They had a rather rough time of it.

    I sure hope not for Chris' sake!!

    Cheers

    this is a joke:
    "What the Thai government doesn’t seem to understand: the responsible party here is whoever uploaded the clip, and even then, they’re only breaking the law if they’re actually based in Thailand"

    the government is a bit less than stable right now...what do they want to do cane the Youtube servers?

    I think they (Thailand) also took great offence to the King and I when it was first released.

    Thailand drops Youtube suit. Sounds like we're right back to the beginning again.
